Mom Imposed Bed Rest

I was supposed to go to a play with my mom this afternoon, but after 4 failed attempts of putting shoes over my swollen feet, she put HER FOOT down as only a mom can do and said, "your feet are up for the rest of the day and you will drink nothing but water."

well, I'm not in love with drinking lots of water (it makes bathroom breaks too frequent for me). But the putting my feet up is probably a good idea. I would like to be productive, but if I can get my feet back down to size, it is probably the best thing for me.

Got to love having a mom who is dictatorial in her love and care of you!

Anybody have some fun sites to check out while I'm strapped to this couch?

You may have heard of these before but:

Also: Make Mine a Mojito has a fabulous chapter story that she's written:

(Yes, I know how to procrastinate!)

I came on here to tell you about, but I'll have to just second it. :) Also, I think Hulu and Youtube can provide some simple, mindless, and wonderful entertainment when you're stuck in bed.

xoxo... I'll think happy thoughts for your feet!!

Wow, what a weekend not to look at my Google Reader! Lunch today was made extra wonderful when I found not one, but three, posts from TRS!!

Being far, far away from ever having a baby myself, I have no advice to offer in that arena. Except to say I'm sure I'd be freaking out too and I am praying for you my friend.

Also, I love for mindless entertainment when stuck in bed. Or any Kardashian sister blog. I know, I'm ridiculous.

Love, Cita
